to this? >> well, we are -- i think the law enforcement personnel, the investigators are confident that the 19-year-old offender who's in the hospital was involved with the incidents on monday. as to whether or not there may be others involved, as i understand it we don't think there may be others at this point. but the investigators as they should are continuing to look into the matter. and authorities including myself are asking everyone to be vigilant but not fearful. to live our lives but keep our eyes open. to make sure if we see or hear of unusual activity to bring it forward. the investigation continues. the arrest of this offender is a significant step, but we recognize we have a long way to go yet, candy. >> senator, that's the challenge, isn't it? to be not fearful but vigilant. sometimes the two of those are a bit mutually exclusive. how do you figure at future events in boston, take the boston marathon in next year, has this fundamentally changed the way you approach large events in that city or any other city? >> any time you have an event like this, candy, you need to
. >> reporter: that's right. a source tells law enforcement source tells susan candiotti that according to the video surveillance, the two suspects stayed at the scene of the crime. they stayed and watched the crowd, they made sure the bombs went off, and then they walked away casually. this is one of the things that may have been of interest to law enforcement when they figured out who in fact they were looking for, is the behavior of these individuals as they walked away from the crowd. the law enforcement source also says that there is another video of one of the suspects leaving his bag at the scene, but that video has not been released, and this source says that's because they feared what might happen to that suspect if anybody were to come in contact with him. i don't personally understand that explanation entirely, but that's the reason that this law enforcement source said, that that video was not released. in any case, the bigger point here is that these two individuals, their behavior was they stuck around, they watched, they wanted to make sure that the bombs went off and the
it was so hard to talk about. i've talked to doctors and law enforcement officials who have seen a lot of bad things in their day and they have a hard time talking about the carnage they saw yesterday. pamela, thank you very much. >> reporter: we're just getting word into cnn that president obama will make a statement 11:30 a.m. eastern time from the white house briefing room. not sure if it's an update on the investigation, if he has new news. but, again, that statement coming at 11:30 a.m. eastern time. we will of course bring it to you the second it happens. what happened in boston was terrifying for hundreds who were there at the scene when the bombs went off. it's terrifying to look at the video. cassidy brettler witnessed the terror firsthand. this is what she told cnn. >> i don't know. i mean, honestly, i got home last night about 11:00 and started to break down because i had been holding it in all day. i had been trying to remain composed. on social media and video just portray what was going on and tell my story. but by the time i was trying to fall asleep, it was hitting me,
should attempt to apprehend them except law enforcement. let me reiterate that caution. do not take any action on your own. if you see these men, contact law enforcement. >> anyone with information is asked to contact the fbi at 1-800-call-fbi or go to their website at bostonmarathontips.fbi.gov. >> i believe and i think mostly talking to the rest of your show, they have video of these guys all the way through this event, lots of incriminating video, i'm sure, which brings them right to the crime scene and away from the crime scene. with he know from our own reporter how they behaved afterwards. also, what the fbi said today specifically, rick deslauriers said, look at these photos, no description. we're not giving you the height, weight, ethnicity. forget every other photo you saw and tell us who these people are. so they want, for some reason or another, they want the public to just focus on these two exact people and these two exact images. >> do not lead people? >> do not lead people. maybe they want that information kept so they can convict these people. maybe they don't want to re
community and the attacks are impossible for the federal law enforcement community to stop. so how to make ourselves more resilient? the steps we need to take are not that sexy. we need to upgrade our transit systems and infrastructure so as to make them less vulnerable to attacks. for example, flynn notes the u.s. navy has invested more in protecting the single port of san diego that is home to the pacific fleet than the department of homeland security has invest ed in the ports of ls angeles, long beach, san francisco, oakland, seattle, and tacoma combined, upon which a bulk of the u.s. economy relies. we must strengthen recovery in the event of a biological attack, which is still the most worrying threat out there. we need to make sure that the public understands the nature of these threats and how it can help identify and respond to them. above all, it needs to understand how not to respond to them. when bad things happen, it's easy to react out of fear, emotion and anger. let's hope that in boston this week we begin to chart a different course. for more on this, you can read my column
happened including american support for -- as a law enforcement and intelligence practitioner is inclusiveness in america. as a law enforcement tool, i worried all along when i was in the business that americans would start to say as a result of events like this that there are real americans and other americans. that kind of mentality if we ever get it will accelerate i think these cases of radicalization. kids like this when they take the oath will say i took the oath but i'm still not accepted. >> to what exstent one of the dangers here? one can overread too much. these may be two cases of a bad situation. to what extent might be assimilation machine in the u.s. be broken down or not functioning as well as it used to. in europe, minority communities were excluded marginalized but not in the united states. the polling data suggests that. but does this tell us maybe we should pay attention to that? >> compared to what? the assimilation mod until the united states works marvelously compared to france or germany or great britain. if you look back in history, the irish, the jews,
you been hearing, susan? >> reporter: michael a federal law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation is telling us that investigators now believe that one of the bombs appears to have been placed inside a metal pressure cooker that was hidden inside a backpack. so inside a metal pressure cooker, hidden inside a backpack. this, again, has to do with what at least one of the bombs that was found. you'll remember that we have been reporting that law enforcement authorities had issued a bulletin to other investigators to be on the lookout for someone who might have been carrying a black backpack in the area of the explosions right before they occurred. so this might go hand in hand with that. we also heard governor deval patrick of massachusetts announce not long ago that there were two bombs and two bombs only. he went on to say that another device that had been found or a suspicious package, rather, that had been found, was blown up as a precautionary measure. so he said they're working with two bombs. we don't have information at this time any or details about the
were bigger than they should have been. photos have been circulated to state and law enforcement agencies, but the pictures are not being released to the public yet because they're worried in so doing they could impede the investigation. it is still unclear whether this was an act of domestic or foreign terrorism, jake. the huge question out there and unanswered at this time. >> the debate going on in law enforcement circles right now about whether or not to release the photographs, to get the help of the public. do you know who these people are? and then there's the risk of course of tipping them off that they know who they are. >> right. >> another story we need to update you on. a mississippi man has now been charged with making threats against president obama and sending threatening letters to him and to a mississippi republican senator wicker. paul kevin curtis was arrested at his home in mississippi for allegedly sending letters to the president and senator wicker. final tests are being carried out right now to determine definitively if those letters are contaminated with t
from a boston law enforcement source who says in addition to the pressure cooker, they say it's undeniable, they have a twisted top of a pressure cooker, about 6 liter capacity. they believe it's two identical devices or two similar devices, but i'm also told a partial circuit board recovered in the same area that also has been sent to quantico. and now this all goes off, we go through this after airplane crashes, they try to take every piece they can get, assemble it back together, try to recreate the bomb. they're hoping to find fingerprints, any kind of dna, something from the backpack. and if you can't get personal identification items like that, look for serial numbers, brand names, at least try to figure out where was the pressure cooker, where might the bag have been bought. >> are you getting a sense from your sources about where this investigation? they are still appealing for help in terms of getting more pictures out there. giving out a fair amount of information which is sometimes kind of rare. >> you can tell from the special agent in charge at the news conference
that it was from law enforcement officials that it may have been from a failed suicide attempt. have we learned anything new specifically on that? >> reporter: we have spoken to the hospital about that, they will not give us any information. i spoke with a boston police chief yesterday, ed davis, and asked him specifically about that. he said he couldn't comment on it. but it is in his neck. it is keeping him from speaking. we know there was gunfire exchange and flash grenades that went off, which has caused dzhokhar tsarnaev to not be able to hear. he's lost part of his hearing. but he fell six to seven feet from the boat and there was lots of blood. with all the questioning and everything you're talking about going on in the hospital and that he's -- he has this wound, and he is under medication, i asked a former fbi agent who worked with group, i said, what kinds of questions are they asking him right now? he says, i would imagine they're asking him about his brother's trips, about the rhetoric, about the associates, about plans, other devices, ultimate plan, others involved, about his dad,
